KIERAN Clark narrowed the gap at the top of the Formula Jedi championship with victory at Oulton Park, on Saturday.
The 15 minute qualifying was spent scrubbing in a new set of tyres due to the puncture at the last round at Cadwell Park, but Clark still put his car on pole for the afternoon race by 1.2 seconds.
The cars lined up on the grid for the start of the 15 minute race in sunny weather conditions, Clark starting ninth of a grid of 29 cars out qualifying, with many of the cars having 1000cc engines.
The red lights went off and Clark had an amazing start passing three 1000cc cars to come out of the first corner lying in sixth position.
